Default Cat Images - from Zen 16mm

I was cat sitting my daughter's cat. These were some I took with Zen 16mm with very close focusing (non-macro) of around 1 ft.

Excellent sharp shots of a sometimes difficult subject, no matter how beautiful.

Very nice, you sure make good use of the Zen. I can almost feel the fur in the 3rd one, but the curves in the middle one is fun. Normally I would think the background was too busy, but the curves make it interesting.

Lovely shots of your cat. Maybe a little work on selecting more interesting / relevant backgrounds (just as grass / bushes / trees etc.) might be more interesting ?

Very dignifying shots of that cat, no confusion around who rules the houshold. Using the 16mm Zen makes the cat very present in your pictures. I have problems here with four kittens who are present everywhere, esp. under my feet wherever I try to put them.

Thanks guys.
Similar exercise. Same with Zen 16mm. I am now in Washington DC and this is my daughter's cat. She adores the images

Great shots, the 16mm certainly is sharp.
